I&m a rising junior (graduating May 2013) at Barton College in Wilson, North Carolina majoring in journalism and public relations with a minor in criminal justice. I&m founder and president of the mass communications club, vice president and radio personality at Barton&s radio station, vice president of Alpha Phi Omega, feature editor for Barton&s student newspaper, The Collegiate, and a member of the Student Government Senate. So far I have interned at two non profits as a social media intern. I personally love internships because they allow me to gain valuable experience in my field of study. They have helped me become more well rounded as a young adult and I feel as though it will prepare me for when I&m able to obtain a full time job and advance in my future career.
